OVER 100 RUNNERS TAKE PART IN SYDNEY AIRPORT"S ANNUAL RUNWAY RUN
Around 100 people raced across one of Sydney Airport’s iconic runways this morning, as the airport officially launched its Community Christmas Giving Appeal in partnership with Cure Cancer Australia.
One of the most exciting community sporting and charity events of the year, the Runway Run gives members of the public the unique opportunity to access the airfield and raise funds for charity.
Sydney Airport's managing director and CEO, Kerrie Mather, said the Runway Run is a highlight of the airport’s Christmas calendar.
“It’s fantastic to see so many members of our community lacing up their sneakers and treading the tarmac in support of a worthy cause,” she enthused.

Cure Cancer Australia CEO Floyd Larsen, noted: “Seeing 100 participants, including fitness fanatics, families and aviation enthusiasts, take to the runway in their Cure Cancer Australia BARBECURE aprons and Santa hats was a wonderful reminder of the dedication and commitment of our supporters.
“The appeal also includes opportunities to donate online and in-terminal through Tap-N-Donate machines at participating retailers, along with coin collection volunteers and Rotary bins for foreign currency.”
Highlights of the Runway Run included a 100m Kids Dash, 500m Seriously Fun Run and Competitive Sprint. The 2017 Runway Run Champion was Peter Gillis, while Ciaran Delaney won both the Kids Dash and Seriously Fun Run.
The annual Sydney Airport Community Christmas Giving Appeal has raised more than a million dollars for charity over the past five years.
